    If you change gear at 4k revs. What approx speeds in mph do yo get from each gear.

    Cheers fellas.

    Hi
    Had a go this morning on the way to work.
    1st = 22mph
    2nd = 35mph
    3rd = 50mph
    4th = 66mph
    5th = 82mph
    6th = 98mph

    This was obviously conducted on my own private test track on not on the public roads... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Cheers bud. I think its more important to know than top speed in every gear. After all, who uses the full 6000 revs in every gear /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif

    One thing that impressed me was the Golf GT TDi 150 I owned last year was chugging along at a shade over 2,000 rpm in top at the legal speed limit.

    OK I tried this with my revo'd S3 today, results were pretty close to previous post:

    1st: 22mph
    2nd: 38mph
    3rd: 50mph
    4th: 65mph
    5th: 83mph
    6th: 105mph

    I tried this on my own personal airfield far far away from pets, children, hedgehogs, other tarmac carnage and freerange humans like ramblers.

    The speeds per gears (1-5) are the same as the gears in my Metro GTI . I thought the ratios in that were short. You guys must change gear so often whilst accelerating. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked2.gif
